How to Make Hibiscus Tea
Hibiscus tea is a popular herbal tea that is known for its vibrant red color, tart flavor, and numerous health benefits. It’s easy to brew hibiscus tea at home for a delicious, subtle, and all-natural beverage.
- 1-2 tablespoons or 2-4 teaspoons of dried hibiscus petals
- 1.5 Liters of boiled water
- Optional – sweetener or other ingredients like mint, ginger, or lemon.
- Step 1: Boil the water. Bring 1 liter of water to a boil in a saucepan or pot.
- Step 2: Add the Hibiscus Petals to the Boiling Water. Add 1–2 tablespoons or 2–4 teaspoons of hibiscus petals depending on the desired amount of hibiscus flavor.
- Step 3: Allow the Tea to Steep for 8-10 Minutes. Reduce the heat to low and allow the tea to steep for 8-10 minutes. The longer it steeps, the darker the color and more robust the flavor.
- Step 4: Strain the Hibiscus Tea into a Container. Once the tea has steeped, strain it into a different container using a fine-mesh strainer to remove any pieces of petals or other debris.
- Step 5: Add Sweetener and Other Flavors to Taste. If desired, add sweetener or other ingredients like mint, ginger, or lemon to flavor the tea as desired.
Your hibiscus tea is now ready to drink! It can be enjoyed hot or cold. If preferred, add ice cubes to the glass for a refreshing treat. Enjoy!
